October 24 NEW
Your midterm for this class will be Tuesday, October 28. You should study chapters 1-5.
As you might have heard, I had an accident and broke my leg about 12 days ago. This is why classes have been canceled as I had to have surgery and stayed in the hospital for 10 days.
Classes will begin again October 21. Because we missed a lot of time, there will be no midterm that week. I will let you know the exact date of the midterm when I get back to class and we have enough material for the test.
Sorry for missing the last two weeks of class, and I am still unable to walk but I am going to try. Please understand if I am moving slow, or unable to walk around the classroom.
